Henry Portrait Of A Serial Killer Review

Quite possibly one of the bleakest and most powerfully disturbing serial killer films ever made, Alan Daly has reviewed the R2 release of Henry Portrait Of A Serial Killer. Now available uncut, John McNaughton's cult shocker offers scary movie fans a (rancid) taste of some real horror.

The Ref Review

<b>Alan Daly</b> has reviewed the Region 1 release of <a href="index.cgi?page=Review&id=1323&story=4370">The Ref</a>, a funny and enjoyably mean-spirited Christmas comedy that features bickering families, a drunken, pissed-off Santa and a sardonic burglar having the worst night of his life.<p><p>

<b>Alan Daly</b> has (retrospectively) reviewed the Region 1 release of <a href="getreview.cgi?id=1157&story=3895">The Parallax View</a>, an engrossing and unnerving political thriller that deals with murderous conspiracies and corporate impenetrability.<p>

Time After Time Review

<b>Alan Daly</b> has reviewed the Region 1 release of <a href="getreview.cgi?id=1116&story=3790">Time After Time</a>, an entertaining hybrid of sci-fi, comedy, romance and thriller that features top-notch performances from its three leads.<p>

The Pledge Review

<b>Alan Daly</b> has reviewed the Region 2 release of <a href="getreview.cgi?id=934&story=3363">The Pledge</a>, a dark and compelling character study from director Sean Penn which features an outstanding performance from star Jack Nicholson.<p>

Deep Red Review

"Anti-Christ" <b>Alan Daly</b> has reviewed the Region 0 release of <a href="getreview.cgi?id=365&story=2325">Deep Red</a>, a first-rate giallo given a stunning transfer by Anchor Bay.<p>

12 Angry Men Review

<b>Alan Daly</b> has reviewed the Region 2 release of <a href="getreview.cgi?id=256&story=2116">12 Angry Men</a>, a classic legal drama that only gets the bare-bones treatment on DVD. <p>
